The Yad LaYeled team has produced a video and dance performance based on Janusz Korczak's coming of age diary, "A Butterfly's Confession". Korczak was a doctor, an educator and an author. He put his three skill sets to use to create a new literary genre that he called "fiction research" – a combination of scientific writing and literature.
The multimedia presentation is based on the final part of Korczak's text. The issues raised during the performance relate to the encounter between the world of grown-ups and that of children, individuality versus conformity, compliance versus free choice, free thinking and liberty.
Produced and performed by the museum team:
